Mental illness *can* be progressive, but there is certainly no proof that this is the case with all patients.

Some people who have reacted adversley to long term SSRI use complain of symptoms that:

a) they never had before taking the medication
b) are not symptoms typically associated with
c) Resolve upon reinsitution of the drug

Another thing that bothers me is that in most other areas of medicine, the patient's experience is generally respected.

I honestly believe however, that the advacement of psychiatry is significantly hindered by the fact that the patient's experiences are often shrugged off as "the underlying disorder".

It only took us like 20 years after SSRI's were introduced for there to be a medical agreement that the drugs can produce *withdrawl symptoms* (and they're still not called withdrawl symptoms for some strange reason)

That being said, I'm sure there are tons of other less common adverse reactions that will never see the light of day for the same reasons.
